Solyndra may sell assets piecemeal at auction

November 22, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Potential buyers are showing little interest in buying Solyndra, the bankrupt California solar-panel maker that received a half-billion-dollar federal loan.

Solyndra officials told a U.S. bankruptcy trustee Tuesday that no qualified bidders for the whole company have come forward.

So Solyndra is now looking selling its assets piecemeal, with separate auctions for equipment, real estate and intellectual property.

Company representatives blame the lack of interest on the economy, not on the political fallout stemming from Solyndra's failure.
